How is this possible? You must be thinking, mentally-ill people talk to themselves? Well, there is a cruel stigma around communicating with yourself, so many feel too humiliated when caught in the act. It actually is a genius thing to do.

Studies have shown that by talking with yourself, you can learn quicker, boost your long term memory and think more efficiently. A study, from the Quarterly Journal of Experimental Psychology, found that speaking can alter ongoing processing of perception.

Which means that by self-talking, especially when there’s repetition of the name of an object, helped the study participants become more open-minded to the object they spoke aloud, which made it easier to search for the object if they looked for it. In fact, many studies and experts have researched to see how talking with yourself helps. All backed by science, here’s the five facts.

1. Your brain works more efficiently

In the experiment conducted by Live Science, participants that repeated objects found them more easily, and had a clearer memory and enhanced ability to memorize. Speaking to yourself out loud can actually help you in what you are doing, which makes it easy for you and your body to comprehend.

2. As a child, you’ll learn better

While growing up, it’s imperative for infants and toddlers to hear their own voices, “self-directed” speech can help guide children’s behavior… often talking themselves step by step through tasks.” As a young kid, you can give directions efficiently and become more able to sticking with them, or any other process.

3. It helps organize your thoughts

According to psychologist Linda Sapadin, talking with yourself helps you validate your important decisions. Talking out loud actually helps you with task prioritization and reducing clutter in your mind. Vocalizing and hearing your issues can calm and soothe your nerves, instead of it staying in your mind.

4. You’ll achieve more goals

Repeating your goals or anything else vocally clear, can help support both your focus and attention, and clear away small distractions. You are practically mentally conditioning your own brain to add in more effort in achieving it. Going through the steps makes it more individually clear, as opposed to combining them together.

So, it is evidently possible to speak to yourself and benefit from it without feeling crazy or deranged while doing so.

Now you know the benefits to self-talking and how it improves brain functions!
